We will rebuild / worlds from shattered glass/ and remnants of holocausts.
Once impaled for our faith / and trained to speak in voiceless whispers / we’ll implore / you to produce the list / from hallowed memories / of our people disgraced/ as outcastes / degraded / as untouchable at / sixty-four feet / denied a life/ and livelihood and done to death /
in so many ways it would take / an encyclopedia to describe and steven-spielberg / or some-such-guy to produce the special effects for a blockbuster version /
not just the stories of how/ you charred to death forty-four of our men and women and children / because they asked for handfuls of rice/
electrocuted children to instant death because they played in your well / and other ghastly carnages
but the crimes of passion/
